In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of the cream, the peanut butter, and 1/4 cup of the powdered sugar.
Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the remaining 2 cups cream and the remaining 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).
Fold peanut butter mixture into whipped cream. Fold in the chopped peanut butter cups. Spoon mixture into pie shell. Top with the halved peanut butter cups. Freeze about 3 hours or until nearly firm. Makes 12 servings.
To make ganache, simply melt chocolate chips in increments of 30 seconds in microwave whisking after each heating until smooth.
Stir in heavy cream until completely smooth then allow to cool to room temperature then drizzle over pie and top with peanut butter cups before serving.
Make sure you select creamy peanut butter if you want a silky smooth texture for your pie instead of chunky.
